1. My beloved Bodum Assam tea press. It sits next to me every day, while I'm sitting at my computer under the fluorescent lighting of my home office.
2. My newly beloved Bodum double-walled tumbler, a set of which Chris gave me for Christmas. These cups are huge (more latte-sized than teacup-sized), which is fine by me when I'm drinking Earl Grey by the pot, and it warms my hands without burning them. (Bonus: it looks like you're drinking iced tea, because you're drinking your tea out of a tumbler, which then tricks your brain into thinking that it's summertime.)
3. All those teas that I got from Murchies while Lynnie was visiting, which have been on regular rotation for the month so far: Green Mango (one of their new ones), Murchies Afternoon, and Earl Grey. (Their Earl Grey is the best I've ever had. Poor Ky and Lyn got to hear the lady at the shop and I have a long and animated conversation about the glories of their Earl Grey tea.)
4. Making the aforementioned Earl Grey tea and then bringing some to Chris in his new Memories of the Future mug (from Wil Wheaton's CafePress store), while announcing the words on the side of the mug: "Tea. Earl Grey. Hot." It makes Chris giddy, because he can pretend he's Jean-Luc Picard, and that cheers me up.
These things are keeping me sane, along with the fact that I'm reading Oliver Twist whenever I sit under my SAD lamp. (It's another way of tricking my brain: during my undergrad I only read Victorian novels during the summer. Oliver Twist + SAD lamp = my brain thinks it's summer outside.)
